2009 UCI Track Cycling World Championships (Spoiler)
Taylor Phinney from the USA took the gold medal in the men's 4k pursuit beating Australia by 2 seconds and a silver medal in the Kilo.
Colby Pearce USA was 6th in the points race.
Two of our local riders, Shelly Olds got 12th and Daniel Holloway placed 18th (and was lapped) in the scratch races. Mark Cavendish (Great Britain) got 7th (and was lapped) in the scratch race. We thought Cavendish was fast. Well, even the really good guys get lapped.
Last week at Hellyer in San Jose, there was a series of races Thursday night where locals competed against Olds and Holloway as part of a party / racing practice and send off to the world championships.
It is great to see the USA doing well in track cycling.
